40's Does 90's

Hello darlings! It's a shame that illness should finally propel me to update my blog. Sitting in bed for the last 8 hours has given me some time to actually edit photos! These are from weeks ago when Sean and I were travelling for Christmas. This was still when I accidentally had my iso set super high so...let's just pretend I made them super grainy on purpose, ok?
We went thrifting and I found these super grunge ankle boots that I just fell in love with. They are fun and different so I snatched them up, and they are incredibly comfortable too. They will be great for work too! This is what I wore for the drive home-a big, cozy sweater and a comfy dress. Can't go wrong there!

What have you been up to this week?

God Bless,

Ephesians 6:14-15
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

Outfit: Vintage Plaid Skirt

Hello, hello again! I hope you are all having a splendid Monday. We have been busy as little bees the past few weeks and the next couple will be more of the same. I don't remember January ever being this busy before? Oi, I'm ready for a break. This week will be filled with meetings, work, preparations for family coming this weekend, and trying to fit a little downtime in between. I think the downtime is going to have to take a backseat.

This is what I wore a couple of Sunday's ago. This coat is my grandmother's, the scarf was made for me by one of my students parents (she said it was called hand knitting?! I need to learn this!), and the skirt was a two dollar thrift store find over Christmas. I love the skirt as I have been looking for a plaid one for quite a few winters now but they were always just a bit too small. this one is just perfect and I shant ever let it out of my possession.

What are you dolls up to this week? 

God Bless!

Ephesians 6:10-11
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Outfit: 1940's Coat

Hi there! I finally have my computer back! I got really used to not having one for a few weeks, and I kind of didn't miss it very much (I didn't have time to miss it!). But now I have a huge backlog of photos to show you so hopefully I will be posting more in the next few weeks. 
Many changes are ahead for our year, I'm just not sure what those changes are yet. I'm still working on job hunting/interviewing without much luck so far. I have a goal of updating my Etsy shop more regularly, and hopefully I'll be able to do that. 

I think I got my camera issued figured out and it should be taking better photos now. These were taken when the camera was still acting up, so excuse the quality. In spite of that I wanted to showcase this beautiful 1940's coat with the most amazing hood! I've never had a vintage coat with a hood before and this is one I hope to keep in my collection forever. It is so warm too! 

God Bless, and a happy week to you all!


Psalm 118:5-6
When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;
    he brought me into a spacious place.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me?

2014 Year End Round Up

Well friends, it seems as though my computer has caught another nasty virus, which is why I haven't posted in over a week. Over the last couple of months it has been so hard to keep up with this little hobby of mine! 
Luckily I had this year end roundup saved in my drafts so I was able to login elsewhere and post it! Hopefully Sean will be able to fix my computer soon and I will be back to blogging more frequently in the new year. Frankly my biggest goal for the new year is to acquire one full time job instead of frantically bouncing between two each day like a madwoman. It has been extremely stressful and I would be so thankful for a boring 9-5 job for a while while I work on my poor neglected etsy shop from home. Because I can't make decisions,  here are a ton of my favorite shots from 2014. Happy New Year everyone!

Jeremiah 29:11:
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.
